Whether or not his sources are telling the truth, that's another thing... but his source is a legit source.

We need to go grab a beer or something one day. I've missed this.

I think this is much ado about nothing.

Meh. Given his track record with contract disputes (though some argue they were understandable given the situation), not sure I'd like to see him play for the Devils, if for the fact we might have to overpay for him. And that's if he can still play well.
If he can actually help us win at his age and his knee isn't an issue though (and takes an appropriate salary...)

She's still in the kitchen.

I'm sorry, that was mean and sexist. What I really meant was, she's a hack.

Also: Thread title updated.

Yeah, it was what it was when he first left, just updated to be part 3. This is a different story arc, I believe. So, new title.

He wont be leaving as in the NHL or KHL? Most sources seem to indicate that he will be back. The only thing pointing to him staying in the KHL is Medvedev's rant and some questionable quotes (which only idicate he hasnt decided yet).

Maybe you should slowly transition back. Seriously, chill the hell out my man.

You know it's hockey season... When we're all waiting for the fireworks factory.

He is looked at as like a hero over there in Russia, him and all the other Russian stars like Ovechkin/Datsyuk. He will probably play until the KHL All-Star game out of respect to the Russian fans, etc, before coming to the NHL. Almost as a farewell game, he likely won't ever have the chance to play in the KHL or in Russia again, aside from the Sochi Olympics.

Hopefully common sense like this prevails for everyone.

The source is kovalchuk himself just read the damn interview at expressports I posted link in previous thread last page.

Tsn's kovy quote that started this mess is out of context and a bad translation intended to create this media circus and it's absolute LIES.

Kovy only says what is pretty obvious in that the cba has to be rarified and when asked if he's going to stay in the khl his reply basically meant that if the cba isn't ratified then yes as if it was a sure thing they wouldn't need to ratify it.

The reason he's still there is clear too and he explains it in interview. Stop reading tsn and **** sucking tweets.
